Who isn’t mesmerized by a fire? A roaring wood fire is a sensory experience; it is alluring with smells, crackling sounds and multi-colored flames. Showing up every day to play with fire can be therapeutic, and for a chef, a visceral and challenging interaction. To master this volatile element requires patience, skill and strict vigilance. Any chef that masters cooking with a wood fire is a “serious chef” and accolades will follow. The reward is in the enhanced flavors, beautiful charring, and delicate smoky wood-kissed elements. There is nothing quite like pulling fiery red-hot cast iron pans from the embers for searing. The draw a fire evokes IS the inspiration for ember farm to fire. Some may consider it a trend, but if that is the case then it is the oldest trend on the planet! Thus fittingly, we named our locally hand-crafted wood fired oven Beatrice. “Behold Beatrice” Dante.
